View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

A Franciscan legend

One day full of joy because he sensed God’s presence in all creation, Francis walked the streets of Assisi singing and inviting everyone to sing along with him.

Then he came upon an almond tree.

“Brother Almond,” he said, “speak to me of God.”

And the almond tree blossomed.
